The Brothers (Olympic Mountains)

"The Brothers are a pair of prominent peaks in the Olympic Mountains which are located near the Hood Canal in Washington state on the boundary between Olympic National Park and The Brothers Wilderness.

The south peak, rising to 6,842 feet (2,085 m), is 192 feet (59 m) higher than the north peak. The Brothers' distinctive double summit is clearly recognizable from Seattle." --- Wikipedia
